Introducing Hydroment Vivid Grout
Hydroment Vivid is a rapid curing, premium grade, cement- based grout for demanding commercial and residential projects. Hydroment Vivid offers consistent color technology with enhanced stain and efflorescence protection. It is both fiber reinforced and rapid curing, which offers early strength development for demanding, high performance installations. This product is suitable for interior and exterior installations on floors and walls in dry to intermittent wet or submerged applications. Vivid is priced slightly less than TruColor grout with similar performance attributes. With these great features and a wide range of colors to choose from, your customers are sure to love the look and maintenance of their new tile floor!
What about those less than ideal subfloors you are bound to run into?
UltraFinishTM Pro is a cement-based, rapid drying, trowelable repair patch and skimcoat that is used to smooth subfloors prior to the installation of finished floor coverings. UltraFinishTM Pro allows for the installation of many floor coverings in as little as 15 minutes. It comes in 10# bags and can be applied over properly prepared concrete, wood, cement-based terrazzo, VCT, ceramic, quarry tile, cutback and non-water soluble adhesive residue. UltraFinish Pro stands up to the competition in all areas and is a more cost effective product. So why pay more? PEHL01
Bostik Webcrete 95 is a fast-settng latex-fortified Portland cement patch for interior use. This product may be used to skim coat or featheredge finish up to 1⁄2” deep in one application. When mixed with Bostik 425 Multi-purpose Acrylic Latex AdmixtureTM instead of water, not only is the performance and flexibility improved, but Webcrete 95 can also be used as an emboss leveler. Webcrete 95 is a more cost effective alternative to Dependable’s Skimcrete that we no longer promote. PEHL01

Scott Banda, Bostik’s Director of Marketing Director and Business Development, said, “Our new cement-based self-levelers offer unique benefits and advantages including being affordably priced, adding installation thickness properties and being ‘walk-able’ much faster than competitive products. They offer contractors the autonomy to install tile, stone, resilient, wood and other floor coverings directly over them. Bostik’s commitment is to continue delivering the highest quality surface prep materials to the marketplace. Always.“
Of course these three products are only "skimming the surface" of what we have to offer with Bostik. Be sure to contact your Tri-State Flooring rep to learn more about how we can help set you apart.
